Vikings De La Guadeloupe - Dégagez Payez Impots (1976)

This quite rare lp from guadeloupean orchestra "Vikings De La Guadeloupe" was recorded in 1976 for Les 3A label. This group included bassist Pierre-Edouard Decimus and played both traditional music (let's say this band invented "zouk" music) and some more funk-oriented stuff. The two best pieces of this album are certainly the groovy and hypnotic "Funky Duke" and the latin "Ven A Comer".

Musicians :
Pierre-Edouard Decimus: bass - Camille "Soprann" Hildevert: saxophone - Max "Maxo" Severin : voice - Happy Lewis: trumpet - Guy Jacquet: guitar - Pierre Menade: piano

I don(t know if you say, but It was one of the famous band of Guadeloupe! with a great saxo, Camille Hildevert "Soprann". When I was child, it was my groupe préféré; ces gars là avaient pour l'époque, une ouverture d'esprit extraordionaire dans le domaine musical; malheureusement, en Guadeloupe, les titres comme Shining star, funky dude, we are the people, n'ont pas eu le succès mérité mais maintenant, ils sont recherchés : ils étaient très en avance par rapport aux autres groupes de la Guadeloupe
